Glad you’re enjoying it. I’m running around cleaning and disinfecting so I’m not watching it. I did see it Off-Broadway. Christine Baranski ran away with the play I remember. She was hilarious as well as touching,
I have no interest in this show but if I did, how could you purchase tickets to it if 9 times out of 10 the lead was out? Same over at WSS according to this chat line.
Didn’t happen with Merman, Midler, Murphy, Peters (in Dolly anyway), Lansbury, LuPone (at least my experience).

...back then, untrue today, you couldn’t sort of have illegitimate children, ah, you couldn’t be pregnant and say I’m going to marry him tomorrow, that was out of wedlock and would have wrecked your career...- Bette Davis, Donahue, 1987
I really don’t care about the orchestrations or the video projections- how the hell is Mr. Isaac Powell? Two weeks into the show and the poor guy is injured already and missing performances? I hope he is OK and that the staging is being looked at. Extraordinary Risk Riders anyone?
Caught this the other night. Mr. Pryce going round and round saying “what’s my position?” over and over again wrecked me and the last scene with him and Ms. Atkins had me in tears. Wasn’t expecting much but got so much more.
I wish this show much success and I’m glad to see that the Producers are offering $29 tickets to all performances but, as I live on the same street as where the Westside is, I’m dreading the crowds this production will undoubtably attract for every performance. Can’t think how they plan to order the crowds that will be spilling out into the street, etc.
OK, remind me: I saw this show in its last legs in the original production, I don’t remember who closed that production, I just remember being disappointed in it after I had heard such great things about the play for so long. I thought then that maybe it was only great with its original stars. Were the roles any age? I don’t remember. Could actors 25 years later play this play? Maybe I should give it another chance with these original stars.
I Assistant House Managed a play called DUST some years ago Off-Broadway starring Hunter Foster and Richard Masur. That has nothing to do with this production but I do find it funny that 2 different plays would have this title!
